Learn how Dartmouth students experience leadership-defining epiphanies and build unbreakable bonds during their summers on campus.
Dartmouth’s green this Sunday was overrun with superheroes.
Hello Hello! These past few weeks in Hanover have been unusually warm with highs in the 70s and 80s. By this time in years past, I've been in full autumn mode, abandoning my sandals for booties and my tanks for warm fuzzy sweaters.
Hello! Welcome back to my blog!
The Green is the setting for the Hopkins Center for the Arts' free contagiously danceable concerts. Often preceded by dance lessons to encourage crowd participation, attendance often reaches 4,000 members of the Dartmouth and Upper Valley communities at these summer music events.
You can often find Dartmouth's Beekeping Association members at the Organic Farm, tending the hives, learning the basics of apiculture, conducting research, and collecting honey to sell at weekly summer farm stands.
The Hanover Chamber of Commerce hosts a weekly farmers market that transforms the Dartmouth Green into a must-attend event filled with fresh, locally-grown produce, meats, herbs, cheeses, flowers, plants, dairy, baked goods, and locally prepared foods. Lemonade and kettle corn is a student-favorite.
A hallmark of the D-Plan, Sophomore Summer brings the entire class of rising juniors to campus for customized study and shared adventures. As a second-year student, you’ll be the buzz in Dartmouth’s hive of activity with key leadership roles such as club president, team captain, or editor of “The D,” America’s oldest college newspaper.
A smaller student body means that summer classes are able to move outside and work on projects that utilize the campus environment. Here, Assistant Professor of Art History, Nick Camerienghi and his students layout a gothic cathedral at the BEMA to demonstrate how medieval masons used simple tools and basic geometry to build soaring cathedrals.
Sophomore summer is a uniting experience. With your entire class on campus as the ONLY class on campus, you'll connect in a way that is reminiscent of First-Year Trips, bonding while seeing the stars from the golf course, enjoying classes you might not take during any other time in your academic experience, and getting a visit from your family during Sophomore Parents Weekend.
The New York Theater Workshop has been spending its summers in residency at Dartmouth for more than 25 years. Over the course of their three-week residency, six of their projects receive an intensive workshop, constructive feedback, a staged reading for the public, and the attention of a dramaturg, actors, and Dartmouth Theater students and faculty.
“It was learning experience for a lot of our students,” says Farm Manager Laura Braasch.
Engineering and a love of sports propelled the two researchers.
The weeklong residency is the first of three summer theater workshops on campus.
